Life insurance can help you secure your family’s financial future by providing the funds they need to: cover burial expenses, uninsured medical bills, pay off your mortgage and other outstanding debts, and maintain a comfortable standard of living.
There are a variety of life insurance policies that we can provide. The kind of policy you choose depends on your needs:
Term Life Insurance
Term Life Insurance is a low-cost way of providing maximum coverage for your family. Protection is provided for a limited number of years. The insurance expires without value if the insured lives beyond the policy period, usually 5 to 20 years. Other policy life periods are available, including 1 year annual renewable term.
Term insurance premiums will not increase during the guaranteed policy time period (term) you select. Term Life Insurance pays a death benefit only if you die during that term. Term insurance generally provides the largest insurance protection for your premium dollar.
Term Life Insurance remains in force for as long as premiums are current, provided there are no misrepresentations on the application. The insurance coverage terminates if you discontinue your premium payments.
Universal Life Insurance
Universal life insurance policies provide the flexibility to build your policy’s cash value or focus more on guaranteed protection.
- Guaranteed Protection lets you choose, within limits, the length of the protection guarantee and the premium payment schedule up front — both are then guaranteed not to change so long as the premiums are paid as planned.
- Cash Value Accumulation grows through crediting interest rates. Cash value will grow tax-deferred and can be withdrawn or borrowed from the policy. It also allows you to change, within limits, your premium payments and death benefit
Whole Life Insurance
Whole Life Insurance provides permanent protection for the whole of life – from the date of policy issue to the date of the insured’s death, provided that premiums are paid. Premiums are set at the time of policy issue and remain level for the policy’s life. Unlike term insurance, whole life combines insurance protection and savings or cash value which builds over time. Cash value build-up may provide a source for living benefits, for example, helping pay off a mortgage, or a child’s education, or cash surrender value if the policy is ever cancelled.
